Meet Pamela Isdell, the extraordinary woman who has supported the African Penguin Relocation Project from the start (providing funds for site research, a full-time staff member and construction of the predator-proof fence at De Hoop). More recently, Pamela announced a further $150 000 donation towards the project. Growing up in Africa, with an abiding love of nature (birds in particular), Pamela became BirdLife South Africa’s Patron for the African Penguin in 2013. We, and South Africa’s birdlife, salute you. Flipper five Pamela!
